Karenn (Blawan x Pariah)
Nina (Golden Pudel)
Room 2: Courtesy
Taking hold of XOYO’s basement for week ten of Ben UFO’s residency is Karenn. This is a duo consisting of Blawan and Pariah, both well revered artists in their own right. They have become one of techno’s most in demand live acts, notorious for the raw music and improvisation they offer. It's a set shimmered in those special moments which make the dangers of improvisation worthwhile.
Joining the duo is Nina. Nina’s a resident of Golden Pudel club in Hamburg. She is known for her unique "Nina trifft" night, singular DJ-ing style and eclectic sets full of experimental sounds. Her taste has produced several superb mixtapes available online, as well as a cassette for “Blackest Ever Black’s". Nina also now co-runs an imprint called VIS.
Courtesy comes to room 2 with her fiercely modern sound, even avant-garde at times, but always aimed at galvanising the club.
